We have a white people’s party, the GOP. And but for two lawmakers — Rep. Neil Rafferty and Sen. Billy Beasley — we have the black people’s party, the Democrats.
No matter the reasons, the outcome is distinct and undeniable. We’re still a state separated by race, and the imbalance of power still benefits the same side.
Those Democrats are fed up with it and rightfully so.
